INspired INsider Podcast
Robert (Bob) Sutton is a Professor of Management Science and Engineering at Stanford University. He is the co-founder of the Stanford Technology Ventures Program (STVP) and the Hasso Plattner Institute of Design (the D School). Bob is currently working with Huggy Rao on The Friction Project, where they focus on why companies make the right things too complicated and the wrong things too easy and what to do about it. He's published over 200 articles in academic and popular outlets, and seven of Bob's books have gotten accolades, including being part of the Top 100 Business Books list, New York Times Bestseller, The Wall Street Journal bestseller, and more. His books include Hard Facts, Dangerous Half-Truths, And Total Nonsense; The Knowing-Doing Gap; Weird Ideas That Work, The No Asshole Rule, and Good, Bad Boss. He also wrote The Asshole Survival Guide: How to Deal With People Who Treat You Like Dirt and Scaling-Up Excellence. In this episode… Many companies are doing the opposite of what they need to do in order to scale their business. They make bad things easy and faster to do, while good things pose more challenges and are accomplished at a slower pace. Bob Sutton says that many companies make this mistake in a variety of ways, from creating friction-laden processes to spending a ton of money on billable hours while doing mundane and unproductive tasks. So what’s the alternative approach that is making unicorns like Facebook change their perspective? How are top CEOs like Patrick Collison of Stripe accomplishing massive things that would typically take months so quickly? Listen to this episode of the Inspired Insider podcast with Dr. Jeremy Weisz as he talks to Stanford professor, best selling author, and in-demand speaker, Bob Sutton, about some of the exciting things he discovered through The Friction Project. They’ll be discussing how top brands like Uber, Google, and Facebook get things done so quickly, how companies can uncomplicate the process for easy tasks, how to avoid making bad things an effortless endeavour, and more. Stay tuned.

SPOTLIGHT: Avoiding an A**hole Culture with Bob Sutton
The Gartner Talent Angle
*This Spotlight is an excerpt from our full interview in 2017. Nobody likes a jerk, but what if YOU are one? We talk with Bob Sutton, a professor of organizational behavior at Stanford University and author of A**hole Survival Guide: How to Deal with People that Treat You Like Dirt.
“Hops without malt just makes tea.” This week’s guest is Bob Sutton, better known as Barley Bob: The Brewer’s Friend, Bob is VP of Sales for RAHR Malting Co, the source of much of the barley malt for Alberta’s growing graft beer industry. Bob grew up in a military household, and while he had intended to follow in his father’s footsteps he and the military had to part ways just after basic training, which Bob describes as his favourite failure. As Bob tells us, this failure may have ultimately been responsible for his path into Alberta’s craft beer industry. At the time Bob was living in Thunder, where as he tells it you basically had two choices: the grain industry or the paper industry, so he applied to work with both. As it so happened he got offered a job in the grain industry and his journey began. After later moving to Alberta Bob was first exposed to craft beer when he drank his first Big Rock Traditional Ale. It was unlike anything else he’d tried and before and his palate for craft beer began to evolve, first from the traditional English browns Big Rock’s Trad emulated to ultra hoppy beers, more complex hoppy beers, and more recently an appreciation for sours. We’ve discussed before on Let’s Meet For A Beer that Alberta barley is world renowned for brewing, and is famously used by Lagunitas in the US. Bob helps us understand why Alberta’s typical weather patterns help mitigate the risk of losing a year’s crop, and how he works with farmers to make sure they’re growing barley deserving of Alberta’s top notch reputation. letsmeetforabeer.com albertabeerfestivals.com RAHR Malting Co
